Unity for Tertiary Refugee Students

The Unity for Tertiary Refugee Students, commonly known as UTRS is a refugee youth led Non Profit Organisation (NPO), operating within and outside South Africa, working towards the realisation of making tertiary education open and accessible for refugees and asylum seekers students.


Although fairly young at 8 years old, UTRS counts amongst its achievements being the only refugee – led NGO in the world dealing with tertiary education issues, as well as having both directly and indirectly assisted more than one thousand individuals through the course of its work.


UTRS is also fortunate to have contributed to the field of refugee tertiary education both at local, national, regional and international foras, and continues to influence positively policy makers and changes makers to refugee tertiary education.
